Progress on the Boys' Coat
I'm working with a suit weight wool melton this time. And since the insulation isn't in the shell fabric, I put it into the lining instead. This jacket is lined with wool/nylon knit overall, with an extra layer of fleece in the fronts and backs. Putting fleece in the sleeves made them too tight, so I just used the wool knit in those. Who says you can't use a knit lining with a woven shell? I've done it lots of times and never had any trouble.
It's mostly done, just buttons and buttonholes to go (I bet you know how I feel about those by now). Pictures to come.
Aside from that, I got some pretty fabrics for Daughter for 3 more dresses, and I'd like to get a top or two done for myself, and a couple of shirts for the husband, and...oh, well, nevermind. I'm really concentrating on knitting projects just now, so I'll have something to show you in that department soon, too.
